Santa Susanna

Santa Susanna, Via Venti Settembre, Roma

Santa Susanna is the ‘National Church in Rome of the United States of America’. It’s a Baroque looking building on a busy street. The Euro and I dropped in to have a quick look a few months ago when we were in Rome.

    It’s the American church in Rome. People feel obliged to point it out to Americans….so I’m sure you did Kenju. It’s near Via Veneto.

    Hey Buff,

    Sadly I missed this church when in Rome the other week. Hey it didn’t stand out enough. Did walk along the Via Sacra though, and trooped to the terrace on the Castel Sant’Angelo, very impressive. Apparently the Emperor Hadrian was once buried there, though if you’ve seen the size of the place not so much buried as placed on top. Hmmm Hadrian, used to be popular in these parts. Built a wall, didn’t much care for the Scots… or the English (Angles, Saxons, and other Woadish sorts) for that matter.
